Building a Strong Legal Community for the 21st Century
Organized on February 4, 1897 with 33 members, The Jacksonville Bar Association published its objectives in its original constitution: to maintain the honor and dignity of the profession; to regulate the practice; to promote improvements in the law and the methods of its administration; to cultivate professional ethics among its members and to discuss legal topics of general interest.

While members enjoy continuing legal education seminars and lawyer referral services, the basic mission of The Jacksonville Bar Association remains to enhance the administration of law as well as the professional and social lives of its members.
